this farm was close to our accommodation in Rhyader so we thought we could finish a lovely day of sightseeing off with watching the feeding of the Red Kites. We were very disappointed at the price of £6 a head.

This was truly a unique experience to see huge numbers of Red Kites swooping down to feed. Saw other birds too - buzzards, crows and even a Heron in the distance. Well worth a visit if you are in the area in the afternoon.
